He was the first endocrinologist to routinely biopsy malignant lymph nodes…and he was the first endocrinologist in New Jersey to employ the latest gene technology to help his patients avoid unnecessary surgery.
Dr. Hollander has earned the prestigious ECNU certification. ECNU is a professional certification in the field of neck ultrasonography for endocrinologists who perform consultations and diagnostic evaluations for thyroid and parathyroid disorders through both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration. ECNU is recognized by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), one of the preeminent, national accreditation bodies for ultrasound practices, and allows those with the ECNU credential to be directors of ultrasound laboratories. Moreover, Dr. Hollander personally performs every neck ultrasound – which is unique.
